He said WHAT?
Those who read my blog regularly know my strong advocacy for critical thinking and my disdain for the antithesis demonstrated by those who fail to use it. It’s simply amazing to find people in positions of leadership that apparently lack this important skill considering that we depend upon them to make sound decisions that benefit us, or at a bare minimum, do not inflict unreasonable restrictive measures. Enter Virginia state attorney general Ken Cuccinelli to serve as a prime example of this character flaw.
“My view is that homosexual acts, not homosexuality, but homosexual acts are wrong,” Cuccinelli said in 2009. “They’re intrinsically wrong. And I think in a natural law-based country it’s appropriate to have policies that reflect that…They don’t comport with natural law.”
Cuccinelli, who is running to be Virginia’s next governor, recently petitioned a federal court to reverse its ruling that the state’s archaic “Crimes Against Nature” law is unconstitutional. That statute outlaws oral and anal sex between consenting adults—gay or straight, married or single—making such “carnal” acts a felony. The law is unconstitutional because of the Supreme Court’s ruling in Lawrence v. Texas, which invalidated such “anti-sodomy laws” across the country. SOURCE
